    Got my second sweep tomorrow. *fingers crossed* this one works. Our next aim is to now get this baby out before his funeral which is next monday, so we can get a nice picture of her done to put in his coffin.

    I think i've finally come to terms with it though and i should stop stressing so much, she'll come when shes ready and theres really not much more i can do!

    I've been on about a 5 mile walk today :rofl: and im absolutely knackered. Been bouncing on my ball too, i just don't want to give up!

    Update

    Woke up this morning and all i got off everyone was ' omg your bump has dropped more!' it looks so tiny now :| i don't see how shes been fully engaged for 2 weeks yet it's only just majorly dropped?

    Anyway.. had my 2nd sweep. Mw came out to my house to do it bless her, she said babys head is really really low down now, she could feel it immediately. Im still only one and a half cm dilated, but she said my cervix is not alot lot thinner than it was. Last time she said it was 50% effaced, i didn't get a percentage this time but she just said it was almost there.. which is good right?

    This one hurt alot more, cus i was on my sofa she struggled to get to the cervix because obviously the seats are soft so i had to sit there with my fists under my bum :rofl:

    She said when she could feel the babys head she could feel her moving!! She said she seems very happy in there because shes still really active and whatnot.. which i didnt want :( lol! But overall i guess it went well.

    Havn't had any pains since though :( last time i was having terrible pains for about 4/5 hours afterwards but nothing this time. Hope that doesn't mean nothings going to happen!

    Hope come they're sweeping you so early hun? I thought normally it doesn't work unless you're overdue as it only releases a small amount of hormones? Good luck though :dust: I had three failed sweeps, so know how annoying it can be!

    It started because of the business with my grandad we wanted him to see the baby so she offered to give me one early but that didnt work and i asked if i could have another one or should i just wait and she said it does no harm to have one so i went for it x

    Weird cause my midwife said today sweeps work better when your past your due date as more than likely your cervix has thinned more xx dont worry though hun i am sure bubs will come when ready x :)
